U.S. Hispanic Chamber Launches Small Business Alliance

 

WASHINGTON,  -- Visa Inc. (NYSE: V), a global payments technology company, and the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) today announced a new strategic alliance to help strengthen and grow the three million Hispanic-owned businesses that USHCC advocates on behalf of through their member chambers.  

Together, Visa and USHCC will provide Hispanic-owned merchants with an array of tools to help them improve cash flow, manage payment acceptance costs, streamline operations and grow their businesses.  Additionally, USHCC members will receive customized access to Visa's suite of small business solutions and educational resources, including:

  • Visa Business Network (VBN), a dedicated community on Facebook that provides small business owners exclusive access to networking opportunities with other businesses and trusted advisors, small-business news feeds, videos, blogs and editorial commentary about issues such as cash flow management and new ways to attract customers.
  • Visa's comprehensive online self-help business education content, including podcasts, interactive workbooks and workshops on topics such as managing and building a business.  
  • Tailored cash flow management workbooks and complimentary Point of Sale signage.  

 

The USHCC and Visa will also work together to develop acceptance solutions for USHCC merchants, especially smaller players with sales up to $1 million, to ensure that they have access to best-available interchange rates and other acceptance solutions from Visa.

"Our card acceptance partnership with Visa will offer Hispanic small businesses an important economic advantage," saidJavier Palomarez, President and CEO, Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.  "This initiative will offer our members access to affordable card acceptance programs that support business growth, especially during these challenging economic times."

Hispanic-owned businesses are one of the fastest growing sectors in the United States today, on track to grow 41.8% to 4.3 million merchants over the next six years according to recent estimates from HispanTelligence.  

"Visa is keenly aware of the role merchants – large and small – play in the health of our economy. We are committed to doing our part by developing payment products and services that enable merchants to strengthen and grow their businesses and, in turn, help drive economic growth," said William M. Sheedy, Group President, The Americas, Visa Inc.  "The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and its members are an important part of this effort, and we are honored to be working with them in this partnership."
